There may be no stronger argument for hand counted paper ballots (HCPB) than the graph below, prepared by Gerald Destremps and submitted to Black Box Voting (www.bbv.org). Go specifically to http://www.bbvforums.org/forums/messages/1954/71200.html#POST39553 for the discussion of the Obama/Clinton phenomenal outcome vs even the exit polls.
Gerald’s excellent spreadsheet can be found at http://www.bbvforums.org/forums/messages/1954/votes2-71218.xls.

See my question below about why Obama wins overwhelmingly 83 towns vs 45 towns on hand-counted (and easily verifiable) paper ballots and Clinton clobbers him 59 towns to 38 towns in those precincts using the same Diebold machines that Harri Hursti hacked in the HBO documentary Hacking Democracy? Every one of these machines is programmed by and controlled by one man, John Silvestro of LHS Associates as a subcontractor for Diebold.
Could it be that Silvestro was paid by the Republicans to fix the outcome so that Obama would not be riding at the top of the wave, so that Clinton would come out the winner? Why would the Republicans want Clinton to win in N.H.? Because almost all matchups show the Republicans have a better chance of beating Clinton than they do of beating Obama. So why not make sure early on that Clinton stays competitive in the race? This would be a classic Rovian tactic, and should not be dismissed as a mere conspiracy theory. Everyone else is trying to figure out how the pollsters could have been so wrong. Maybe they weren’t wrong at all. How else do you explain the fact that you get VERY VERY different results when comparing using one method of voting and counting to another method of voting and counting?
Per BBV, Debra Bowen is in N.H. to observe a recount in a Diebold township. This is a very BIG story, and the mainstream media, as usual, has missed it completely so far.

Also, go to www.bradblog.com for outstanding coverage of this developing and explosive story.

This shows why HCPB is so important. Why would Obama win so decisively using HCPB and yet Clinton win with the machines, which have minimal ability to be audited.
HCPB cost is irrelevant, the issue is that it can be verified.

The degree of willingness of a government to open itself up to public scrutiny and public audit foretells the quality and integrity of that government.
